The age old retort "Is the Pope Catholic?" officially changed to "Is the Pope Governor of Alaska?"

The Pope is hardly the first person to lose interest in their real job so soon after joining Twitter.

Four years ago, Sen. Claire McCaskill (D-MO) celebrated President Obama's swearing-in by inaugurating her cheeky presence on Twitter:
Scalia in a really weird hat.

It seems that hat has haunted her dreams for quite some time, because she returned to fashion-tweeting just in time for this year's ceremonies:

Massachusetts may blush red on occasion, but its blood is definitely Democrat blue. That said, Scott Brown may have revealed his true colors…
When asked for his "model Supreme Court justice," Massachusetts Republican Sen. Scott Brown paused as if he knew his answer might get him in trouble. "Ah… that’s a great question," Brown replied. "I think Justice Scalia is a very good judge."
Some in the audience booed and Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren wasted no time trying to capitalize on Brown’s admiration for the conservative justice.
Elizabeth Warren also wasted no time whatsoever making this face during his answer. After being rapped on the knuckles for naming the most conservative judge since William Rehnquist, Scott Brown then named several other justices, including Sotomayor. Unfortunately, the question wasn't "How many Supreme Court justices can you name?" If that had been the question, he would have gotten a C+ instead of an F.
But then again, Scott Brown is nobody's student.
